Teen Murder Suspect Escapes from Hospital, Philadelphia Police Launch Manhunt

Philadelphia police have initiated a manhunt for a teenage murder suspect, identified as 17-year-old Shane Pryor, who escaped from a hospital. Pryor, who is considered “dangerous” by authorities, was being held on murder charges prior to his escape from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s emergency room parking lot.

Deputy Commissioner of Investigations Frank Vanore revealed details of the incident in a news conference. Pryor managed to escape from the hospital staff and fled the scene on foot after being brought in for an apparent hand injury.

Pryor is described as a Black male with a light complexion, standing at 5’7″ and weighing 180 pounds. At the time of his escape, he was seen wearing blue sweatpants, a blue sweatshirt, and slides with socks on his feet. Surveillance footage reviewed by investigators indicated that Pryor entered and exited buildings in the vicinity following his escape.

The United States Marshals Service Philadelphia reported that Pryor may be operating a stolen Ford F-150 and requested the public’s assistance in locating the vehicle. However, no lockdowns were imposed on Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and authorities believe that Pryor is no longer in close proximity to the hospital.

Philadelphia law enforcement strongly encourages anyone with information regarding Shane Pryor’s whereabouts to contact 911 and advises against approaching the suspect.
